Carragher predicts a great future for Saliba

After the World Cup (2022), they were totally different defensively. They continued to get results, but while conceding goals. Then, without Saliba, they fell further. That’s when they lost the championship. With Saliba they were always up front but to believe they weren’t conceding or vulnerable with him in central defense is a myth “says the former defender of liverpool For Monday Night Football.

“He has the potential to become a Virgil van Dijk, a Vincent Kompany or a Rio Ferdinand”

When you think of title winners, you think of players in my position: Vincent Kompany, Virgil van Dijk, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Jaap Stam, John Terry. When I look at Arsenal centre-backs, I don’t think they have one of them yet, although Saliba could become one. (…) I think he has the potential to become a Virgil van Dijk, a Vincent Kompany or a Rio Ferdinand, this kind of character in central defense. (…) I’m not saying he wouldn’t have made a huge difference in the second half of the season. He would have, because he’s better than Rob Holding, he’s better than Kiwior, there’s no doubt about it. But he was still making mistakes that led to goals », adds Jamie Carragher.
